Snohomish Real Estate
Located at the confluence of the Snohomish River and the Pilchuck River, the City of Snohomish, Washington, is a well-established community with a long, rich history. The area was first settled by Native Americans, but most had relocated to the Tulalip Reservation before white settlers arrived in the late 1850s. Among the first white settlers were Edson Cady and Heil Barnes, who staked claims in the area, established a post office, and a mercantile. At that time, the community was known as Cadyville. In 1861 Snohomish County was established, and in the same year, Cadyville became the county seat. Then in 1871, Cadyville was renamed Snohomish, and by 1884 it was home to seven hundred people, six saloons, a school building, and a courthouse. By the time Snohomish was incorporated in 1890, the population had grown to nearly two thousand and by 1895, it had exceeded three thousand residents. Today, this charming city is home to around ten thousand people and a wide variety of amenities, including shopping, dining, entertainment, and recreation options.
